Gamecube case (looking for)

Mon May 19, 2014 12:21 pm

Hi guys, I'm looking at putting 2 pies (my server and email server) inside a gamecube like case, so to look nice and retro on my shelf, as well as keeping all the cables nice and tidy, (1 power and 1 Ethernet going in, everything else inside the case)

I was just wondering if anyone knows where I can get a gamecube like case reasonably cheap? UK only please...

Thanks

Dan

try finding one thats bust up on ebay or a bootfair . As a retro game collector it would sacrilege to destroy a working one!!! You can pick one up for less than a tenner though!

Found someone willing to make me an acrylic cube case, that can be cut/engraved to look like a gamecube. so I'm going for that. Thinking about SD extenders to look like memory cards lol

I would love to follow what you are doing, please keep us informed, I am also in the process of building a console look alike case. How are you going to be cutting the acrylic and styling it etc.

Hi buddy

I got mine from ebay. A broken gamecube will sell for around £10

Her is mine. Not a server but a desktop.
